The Race Against Gun Violence (RAGV) celebrates the life-changing work of community organizations and provides a dynamic platform for people who care about ending gun violence to connect and get involved.  

This year, the 8th Annual Race Against Gun Violence returns to Grant Park on September 23 after going virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. A virtual option will still be available to those who are unable to attend in person.  

RAGV offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity to Choose Hope and join others who share the common vision of a Chicago free from the fear of gun violence. 100% of charitable contributions go directly to nonprofit organizations dedicated to ending gun violence.

Here you will find resources to help your organization make the most of the Race Against Gun Violence as a platform to advance your mission.
